Do you think stuffed cabbage will freeze well?

This is the recipe I want to use. Will it do okay if I freeze it, do you think?

8-12 large cabbage leaves
1 pound extra lean ground beef
1/4 pound ground sausage
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 green onion, finely chopped
1 tsp salt & black pepper
1/2 tsp ground sage

Drop cabbage leaves into boiling water, cover and cook for 3 minutes. Drain well. For filling combine ground beef, ground pork, onions, peppers, egg and spices. Mix well. Place 1/8 of meat mixtures into the center of each cabbage leaf. Roll leaf around the filling and fasten with a toothpick. Place in a baking dish seam side down. Add water to 1/4 inch and cover pan with aluminium foil. Bake for 45 minutes, remove and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

I think it will - I made some for my Mom's birthday dinner, at her request, in early December, and she froze some of it, which she just defrosted and ate the other day, and she says it was just as good as fresh!

That should freeze just fine. It's raw cabbage that does not freeze well.

Congratulations True True

You are really getting close. That is wonderful. I am 12 lbs. away from
the doctors goal for me. That does not mean I will be satisfied but
anyway. You go girlfriend. Our cabbage rolls never last long enough
to freeze. Hope you will report. If Char's mom sez they are still good,
that's good enuff for me.

Would this filling make a good filling for stuffed green peppers?

My recipe is very similar(no green pepper) and I add a generous 1cup chopped raw cauliflower(to replace rice). I use for stuffed cabbage and stuffed banana peppers. I make a big batch, separate into servings and freeze. It always has tasted fantastic.

Reporting in on my stuffed cabbage... unfortunately it became a dish of UNstuffed cabbage :blush: I just could not peel those durn leaves off the head of cabbage without ripping them! So I just ended up cutting the cabbage up and layering it in a pan with the meat mixture. It tasted great and I'm quite sure it will freeze just fine.

Yes...stuffed cabbage absolutely freezes well...I actually think it tastes better after is has been frozen...I guess the flavors meld together
